Drawing uses a different part of your mind than talking does. Drawing without talking can improve your ability to listen. Try it!
Set up your page by marking off a very small space for writing. Just enough room for a sentence or two. Then fill the rest of the page with drawing.
You can draw what’s in front of you or copy something. You can draw from memory or imagination. You can doodle. You can color the page one solid color. You can do all these things on different parts of the page.
While you draw, listen. To anything you choose: music, the news, another person, an audiobook, or ambient sounds. Even if the sounds around you “disappear,” you are still hearing the sound of your own mind.
When the drawing space is completely full, write something in the writing space. Don’t plan it. Put down whatever pops into your mind.
Give your work a title and write the date on it.
